Waylon Jennings – The Wurlitzer Prize (I Don’t Want To Get Over You)

In songs on February 13, 2012 at 11:16 am

The outlaw country movement of the 1970s was similar to the punk movement in that it emphasized a return to simplicity, and Waylon Jennings certainly exemplified that approach.

Actually being able to hear the space between notes is a rarity in modern recordings of almost every genre, and a track like this is a good reminder of the power that emptiness holds if we will but allow it to exist.
